DESCRIPTIONS: Infrastructure Security and Internet Incident Response
              Mr. McPherson will provide a discussion of the Infrastructure
              Security Survey results, including details on deployment and
              implementation of popular attack detection and mitigation
              techniques, common attack vectors, attack scale and related
              trends. Also, he will provide an incident response
              methodology and information regarding structure and
              organizational points of contacts for issues with various
              Internet domain name operators and IP address space

              DDoS Attacks Against Europe
              In the spring of 2007, the country of Estonia suffered a
              deluge of distributed denial of service (DDoS) attacks,
              coordinated to coincide with street-level protests. These
              attacks caused nation-wide problems for the heavily wired
              country of Estonia, and recurred in early 2008. These attacks
              were not the first such politically motivated attack and will
              certainly not be the last. This talk will explore the world
              of DDoS attacks and their growing role as an online political
              weapon. This talk will also cover how Arbor Networks measured
              the Estonia attacks as well as how other attacks are measured
              and what they mean for the Internet at large.
